Method 1, Using a Washing Machine

Put your shoelaces in a sock.

  • Remove your laces
  • Stuff them into a sock

This way, they can be cleaned separately in the same load as their respective sneakers and avoid contact with dirt or other materials that ruin their look! Tie an end tightly using either elastic bands or lace.

Put Your Shoes in a Pillowcase.

Place all of your shoes into a pillowcase; you can usually fit up to three pairs of footwear in one baggy casing; don’t stuff anything too tight! Remember, not every pair of footwear has been created equally.

Follow the manufacturer’s recommendations when washing wark water because some materials may not withstand high temperatures, such as nylon socks, which need cold water only instead of warmer ones.

Wash your Shoelaces With Detergent

Put the sock and Pillowcase with your shoes into a washing machine, then fill it up to 1 full cup of detergent. Laundry isn’t easy, but with these simple steps, you’ll be able to make sure everything is clean!

Make sure you line dry your shoes in a cool, dry place for a day.

Basements and garages don’t often provide enough airflow, so avoid that. If you have an electric household fan, place it behind or next to the shoe so that air can flow more freely without any obstruction from other objects like furniture.

  • Don’t use a drying machine. 
  • Don’t dry on sunlight (you’ll lose the style of shoes)

Method 2, Whole Process Manually

Remove your shoe's laces.

Use a clean, absorbent cloth to stuff your shoe and remove any dirt from the laces. If dirty, soak them in 1 teaspoon (4.9 mL) dish detergent water before scrubbing with a soft bristle brush!

Using a brush, remove excessive dirt

A soft shoe brush is a great way to remove exterior dirt from shoes. Gently brushing with light, simple motions, and using less pressure will ensure you get all of the grime off without damaging the surface finish on your favorite kicks!

Create a solution for cleaning

Laundry detergent is a natural and pervasive substance found in many households. Mix warm water and gentle laundry detergent until there’s just enough sudsiness but not too bubbles or stickiness. Bleaching agents could cause damage which would make the fabric discolor over time, while washing machine accidents happen much quicker than expected.

Wash your shoes

Apply your cleaning solution and wipe in circles gently, so you don’t scratch or damage them further. After you’ve applied the cleaning solution, let it sit for several minutes. Repeat this process until the desired result has been achieved.

Remove soap from the surface.

Cleaning mesh shoes is a delicate process. You don’t want to risk damaging them by making quick work of it or getting too heavy-handed with the cleaner, so take your time when removing excess moisture from these types of sneakers! You will need two soft cloths to do this properly.

Air-dry your shoes

Choosing an excellent, dry spot out of direct sunlight is essential and allows your shoes to air-dry thoroughly. Fill them up with newspaper or paper towels so that their shape can be better retained as they dry.
